I noriced this before- obviously the main ten jam became playing in the band- but there are other moments in jams that do show the boys listened to the shows afterward- sometimes years afterward- and liked something so much they wrote a new song around it-

case in point- 1/2/70 Lovelite- about 14 minutes and 30 seconds into the song, the band is riffing away on a chord progression that is very very similar to the beginning of Franklins Tower- give it as listen, let me know what you think- can any one think of others like this?

Yeah there wre definitely a few that came into being that way. It seems like there's a couple of shows on my itunes from 1974 where in some jams they begin noodling around with a version Sliknot. I can't remember which show that was now. Maybe someone else will remember.

I always thought that the "Mind Left body" jam was an inspiration for Blues For Allah, you know... "Under Eternity, Under Eternity...Blue" Anyone else hear the similarity?

Actually the MLB jam is an outgrowth of a tune Jerry played guitar on on "Baron Von Tollbooth & the Chrome Num" featuring Grace Slick & several other Airplane members. Great stuff!

I had noticed the similarities between MLB Jam and Blues for Allah as well. It appears that perhaps this was a riff that went through a few incarnations.
